hurt from the elections. and one of the criticisms leveled at him was he mismanaged the relationship with the united states. and here was the president all smiles and friendship and patting each other on the back. that was very good for mr. netanyahu. he relished it and he took advantage of it. but this was the first cause. the second cost somewhat less tasty for the prime minister. >> rose: what is less tasty for him? >> he himself endorsed or reendorsed the idea of two state solution for a palestinian state. but his concept of a state or his concept of a settlement is more modest than that of president obama. and when secretary of state kerry returns to the region in a short while to pursue the work, these differences will surface. they were not-- they came out unilaterally by the president in the speech but they will come up fully when secretary kerry returns to the region. >> rose: but how did barack obama come to the presidency with what attitudes did israel, what commitments, what sense of significance for him? >> i think you have two book ends to this story. the cairo speech o

, still licking their wounds from the november election, the republican national committee is out with a new report that outlines steps needed to reboot the party for 2016. among the proposed reforms, a streamlined process for earlier convention. improved outreach to women and young and minority voters. will the reforms be enough to give the gop brand a much-needed boost? joining us is mark stevens, ceo of msco and author of "your marketing sucks." with me the rest of the hour and i thought i introduced before, but i didn't, mark hanna and republican strategist chip saltsman. mark, what did this republican document do for the gop? >> it does nothing. it is a committee report adding to a pollution of noise that is going on in the republican party right now. the fact is as a marketing person, you cannot have a brand, talking about branding, you can't have a brand without a product. >> is the product the message? >> the product is the person. we don't have a person. you can't brand nothing. you say we come with a brand, what is it? gum, software? >> they said governors, pay attention
community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think anything is going to come of this? will there be a peace process any time soon? >> again, the situation is decidedly unripe given the divisions of the palestinians, the israeli government is not a government that was elected to make peace. this was a government that was elected to deal with the special privileges of the orthodox within israeli society. you got the turbulence in egypt. you will have turbule
with the 2014 mid-term election? that happens the same year this is rolling out. >> it will be a train wreck and it is going to be as nina indicates not a theoretical argument but a practical one. people will see the real effects. also, the sham way in which it was constructed. chuck asks where is the money going to come from if you don't tax device makers? it comes from the taxes. this is going to be added on the deficit. they constructed a budget, that made it look as if, as obama promised, not going to cost the treasury a dime. well, the cbo says it will cost $1.3 trillion over a decade. so there is an increase in $1.3 trillion plus a dime in taxes. so that it ends up looking like it's not going to cost. but there will be increases in taxes everywhere. this one will be canceled. it's ridiculous. this is the one area, medical devices where the u.s. has tremendous advantage in technology over the rest of the world. why would you kill an industry that is so productive? so, the money will be cut. it will have to come out of taxes. the $1.3 trillion will become $1.6 trillion. it will climb. ul
, we don't do that; right? >> right. we just dig heels in as i said, and i think what the elected officials just fail to observe and do, neil, is just really respect where people are coming from, and, frankly, stop taxes, stop regulations, fewer lawsuits, let's help get small business out of the hole they are in, and it's just a classic example of how very little most of our elected officials understand how a business, a small business is run in america. that's just too bad. neil: all right. we'll watch closely. thank you, all, for your help today. we'll keep a close eye on all the developments and the president's trip and whether this economy is going to go up. tomorrow, a look at numbers you don't really quite see all the time that might beg that issue.y ♪ here's gerri willis. >> good evening, everybody. tonight, a cyberattack paralyzes banks an media companies in south korea. who is behind it? could it happen here? also, putting the brakes on high frequency traders. are they breaking the law and stealing your money? a new policy from one of the country's biggest companies. te
with -- but the israeli government was not fully anded until saturday night into monday. they had their election just after the inauguration here in january. there was a lot of trouble forming a finalized coalition with the other parties there. obama is coming into a situation where there is not a huge amount that can really get done with a new government because they're still sorting themselves out and getting in a position. is much weakened from where he was before the election. he has fewer members of his own party and the parliament is in a situation where it is not entirely clear what the way forward is going to be. that is what obama is coming into, as he goes into these meetings. , with politico. thanks for your time this morning. guest: thank you. host: president obama and the prime minister will give you -- will be giving a joint press conference. look for coverage on c-span.org. minister ofrael defense from 2007 until this week wrote a piece in today's wall street journal. host: back to our discussion here for the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. we are getting your thoughts this morning.
friend bebe. he knows, benjamin netanyahu just won re-election like the president has. the netanyahu is likely to be in the job for a while. he is fated to have to deal with him. so it makes sense to have this kind of at least, get the relationship back into at least a, some kind of, lack of hostility at a minimum. jon: it was written in one of the papers that the president offered to israel or israelis the kind of warm embrace that they are accustomed to getting from american presidents but they hadn't gotten from this president up till now. >> no, they haven't. there is no question about that. in fact the first term was full of testy exchanges and i think that the president thought, okay, i can twist israel's arm and make them do this. it turns out he really can't. he needs their trust. now he also went to ramallah and met with the palestinian authority leader where they were a lot warier about u.s. commitments and you think he discovered that, there is still a long, way, jon, for there to go between if we get peace between the palestinians and israelis. it is an interesting questi
by that is the 2010 electorate that elected republican house of representatives was a much more conservative, a much older in terms of demographically and much whiter electorate than the 2008 or the 2012 electorate. that was the high point of anti-obama backlash. >> tea party. >> the tea party. that produced a house of representatives and it produced state legislats lislature that gerrymanders to lock in a quau si permanent republican majority in the house. in 2012 republicans lost a million more votes in the house than democrats and maintained a fairly significant majority. so what has happened is the moment in which the public was most plausibly behind a program of austerity and cuts and inl posed pain, which is what this is about, has passed. and yet it is carried forward through this kind of trick of the budget control act, the debt ceiling deal, and all these straitjackets that have been put onto the process so that we are now two years later, even though there's not public support for it in any deep sense, it has been repudiated at the ballot box by a fairly significant majority, house, senate

elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla

and 4th will be used to help democrats in the election next year. the president wants the democrats to regain control of the house. >>> there was a meet yore without warning in russia wounding 1200 people and damaging thousands of building. hours later an asteroid missed earth by a little more than 17,000 miles. that's closer to earth than many satellites. astronomers estimate 20,000 potentially hazardous asteroids. >>> this morning, nasa is trying to fix a software problem that's side lined the mars rover "curiosity." nasa says ground controllers are still in contact with the rover but it cannot roam around and take pictures until a fire error is fixed. they hope to fix the explorations by next week. it sounds like a little, mundane problem, a little fire error but it's so far away. >> yeah,. >>> sal, highway 4, is it getting better? >> yes. they've opened up the lanes there. this may have been caused by a wrong-way driver. the lanes are open. but highway 4 is a mess coming out of pittsburg and antioch. this is after willow pass road. all of

's going to face the republican runoff winner in the may 7 special election. >>> michele bachmann nearly ran through the halls of congress to avoid some pretty tough questions from one of our own, cnn's dana bash. there you have it. take a peek. this is what you call at haste. dana bash was asking michele bachmann about the comments she made at the conservative conference cpac. mrs. bachmann used president obama of very frivolous and lavish spending on a lifestyle within the white house. have a listen to how she characterized it. >> now we find out that there are five chefs on air force one. there are two projectionists who operate the white house movie theater. they regularly sleep at the white house in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog. >> all right. so i'm going to re-join that story in a moment. but i want that take you right back to israel right now, because that news conference we've been awaiting with president shimon peres and united states president,
servants. it's about the oath we took as an elected official that we would serve our communities, that we would come here and make a difference. so congressman bera, for me, it's about standing strong and saying to my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, join us, join us and make a difference -- in making a difference to help our seniors and to protect and to save medicare. and that's my message and my story. nd i yield back. mr. bera: thank you to my colleague from the great state of ohio. that's why we're asking folks today to share their stories. we'd love to hear your story about how medicare has affected you or a family member or a friend. share it on facebook or twitter. we want to hear those stories. this body needs to hear those stories. this body needs to make sure when we're taking votes we're voting understanding those stories. you know, as a doctor, i took oath to do good, to do no harm. well, if medicare becomes a voucher program, it will do irrep ribble harm -- irrepairable harm to millions of americans. the reason i'm on the floor today is to talk about the good that medi
definitely did not do much to support obama in this re- election cycle. however these three short days in the middle east have done a lot to bridge these gaps. we saw benjamin netanyahu willing to be persuaded by president obama. i think we saw the israeli public, even though it may have started out with a deep mistrust towards obama, it ended this week with a lot of affection. maybe it did manage to bridge some of these gaps. ,ost: after a two state evening he arrived on wednesday, meeting with the israeli prime minister. thursday he traveled to the west bank and met with the palestinian authority president. friday, meeting with the king of playing tourist yesterday and returning to washington at 8:00 last evening. the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, asked about the ambitions of iran when it comes to your -- nuclear weapons. here is more. [video clip] >> we had an opportunity to begin discussing a wide range of issues critical to our countries. foremost among these is the iranian fault -- relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. mr. president, you have made it clear the you'
. and this is when we had a much more successful election, the parliamentarian elections and so forth. there was an opportunity, i believe, at that stage to consolidate some gains and to move toward a sustainable political outcome. and we know that some of those efforts failed or weren't sufficient to consolidate those gains. and so the future of iraq is, obviously, very much in question beyond this point, but i think it's very important to understand that these conflicts evolve over time, and we're fighting enemies there who have a say in the future course of events, and we need to talk more about those enemies. what are they trying to achieve, what are their goals, what are their strategies? because then we could inform the public about what the stakes are. but instead we talk about only us, and we talk about only our number of troops and what we did and as if everything we did led to the outcome without any interaction with those against whom we're fighting. >> let's open the conversation now, and -- [laughter] i think what we'll do given the number of hands i see is we'll take two
have been what on the 10-year yield? how far would have gone a year ago? >> after the greek elections you have a blowout in the spanish bond market, dropping to 125. dagen: in terms of cyprus, that situation is not resolved the parliament voting down that haircut europe was demanding on those deposits, but why is that risk not worth worrying about? >> i think the risk is worth worrying about. things the ecb has put in place going forward. if we were to escalate to the point cyprus would leave the monetary union, that is something but a plan b. in the works so we will wait and see. dagen: if interest rates go up even as much as you are talking about, is that a headwind for the stock market, you think, with the rally we have seen in the last couple of weeks? >> i am a bond guy, have to be careful talking about stocks. we are not looking for that kind of an increase in rates, maybe 240 on the 10-year period that is not a headwind for the economy. dagen: what do you see, or do you see a change in attitude among investors, greater willingness to own stocks at this point and maybe some worr
. speaker. the american people expect elected leaders in washington o revive our stagnant economy. we've offered a responsible plan to balance the budget with responsible reforms. the best plan senate democrats can come with continues to spend more money than we take in. their budget never balances. it includes $1.5 trillion in new taxes. mr. walberg: at least senate democrats have finally come around to offering a plan after spending the last four years on the sidelines. the president has yet to submit his budget to congress. already six weeks behind his legal deadline. budgets offer a picture of how government plans to steward taxpayers' money. the senate asked for higher taxes, to fund higher spending, to finance ever-growing government. my constituents are tired of the cavalier and unserious approach that has become all too common in washington. i'm pleased that the house republican majority continues to take its responsibility seriously and produce budgets which balance, getting us back on track to fiscal sanity and a healthy economy. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the ti
president win the election in april. i think senator knows is, the economy, all of that is on the edge to either a pilot country. the vice president when he wins the election was likely to win is going to inherit all of the problems that already existed there and they're pretty critical. the one difference is he does not have the charisma that chavez had with 51% of the country. he's got his hands full, but we don't and dissipate and it's really a state department question. we don't anticipate any real change between our country and the venezuelan government at least in the short-term. >> admiral stavridis, i was not a proponent of the s.t.a.r.t. treaty, primarily because it did not address tactical nuclear weapons. the russians we now have continued to have not increased their arsenal, certainly modernized inventory of tactical weapons. what information can you give us relative to the continued reduction of nuclear weapons or the issue relative to technical versus strategic by the rush of this? >> stair, and classified level you are correct russians have basic ticket inventory of tact
in their elected officials in washington. >> well, that's the problem. they don't. and when you see the minority leader -- again, i'm not picking on one side. harry reid was talking to. when you see the minority leader saying, to do foreign policy at 3:00 o'clock in the morning with a bunch of guys talking about march madness, and to call this our finest hour? it's that old joke, your second finest hour if this is the finest hour. and i really do think, you know -- when i grew up, we usedf these men and occasional women of real standing and stature. i remember going to work there as a young assistant and thinking, my god, look at me from lynn, mass, i'm at the u.s. senate. now i think it looks more like a carnival and that's the democracy. >> rick: we've got the far left in you're party, susan, who refuse to talk about any sort of substantial cuts to entitlement. they really just want to continue to raise taxes on the wealthiest in this country. then you got the far right on the other side who want to cut everything except for defense spending. then you got i think the bulk of the country which
on the global stage. president obama knew when he was elected that he wasn't going to be able to travel around the world and make america's case on a daily basis because he was going to be busy at home with the economy. so there was a very clear reason why he -- one of the many reasons why he chose her as secretary of state, because he knew she could do that for him on a daily basis in all around the world. and that's why i think that she would bring to him an accurate reading of where things stood, what she could deliver to him in terms of moving forward, in terms of agreement, in terms of where the players were when it comes to libya, for example. deliver to him, you know, what was needed for him to make the decision. she lost some battles, but she certainly influenced a lot of decisions. libya being one of them and asia, definitely. >> host: uh-huh, and we'll get to libya next, actually, i find that a -- it was a or very interesting scenario in what happened there. but just one last question on the israeli/palestinian conflict. i was covering aipac in 2010 when hillary clinton spoke at the
